Experience Your Past Lives
I've specialized in past life regression therapy with adults for almost 30 years. I've studied with many of the pioneers in the field of past life therapy, have a Master's Degree in Counseling, and I estimate I've regressed more than 2000 people since 1989. (Actually, I have lost count!)
I give private sessions in my office in Media, Pennsylvania, (about 25 minutes from the Philadelphia Airport). These are regression therapy sessions where you take an active part. They are NOT passive past life readings. They must be done in person and cannot be done over the phone or via Skype.
If you are already familiar with past life regression and are ready to book an appointment, please go directly to the Past Life Regression FAQ to get answers to the most basic questions about how I work, and then give me a call. Details in Contact page.
What is Past Life Regression?
Past life memories are the autobiography of your eternal soul-—personal stories that explain who you are now and why you’re here on Earth.
Past life regression is a therapeutic technique for accessing and re-experiencing your past lives directly. A branch of hypnotherapy, past life regression therapy has grown over the last 50 years to be an important addition to the healing arts.
Benefits of Past Life Regression
Some people try past life regression simply out of curiosity to see who they were in the past. But for most, it’s a path for personal growth and healing. With the help of a trained guide, past life regression can help you:
- See personal relationships in a new light
- Energize talents and abilities from the past
- Release fears and anxieties linked to past life traumas
- Release past life traumas at the root of physical problems
- Experience the transitional states of death and beyond
- Understand and align with life purpose
How Does Past Life Regression Work?
While in a light trance, with me as your guide, you experience each past life yourself. You see it, sense it, and feel it. You are the central character deeply involved in the past life story.
(Regression therapy is not to be confused with a past life reading, which is a passive process and has little therapeutic effect.)
For more information on the the outward mechanics of the process, see the Past Life Regression FAQ. You can also read an excerpt from my first book that gives a firsthand account of what the trance experience feels like.
Seeing, Feeling, Sensing Past Lives
Past life regression is an amazing, full-sensory experience. You might experience the memory as a vivid movie, or see only vague flashes of images that prompt the narrative. You might hear gunshots or explosions on a battlefield, or music at a dance. It is possible to recall smells too: smoke from a fire, leather from a saddle, or the sweat of a dirty body.
As the story unfolds, you feel real emotions appropriate to the story. You may cry when you re-experience deep sadness at the death of a beloved child, feel despair in the pit of your stomach as you witness a massacre, or elation at a long-awaited homecoming from war. And just as you can recall strong emotions, you feel the pain of an arrow piercing your body as you are dying, or the heaviness of a load you’re carrying on your back. These physical sensations and emotions are very real in the moment, but pass quickly as you move through the past life story and death.
How the Healing Works
Past life regression is healing. You were born not as a blank slate, but as a soul rich with both the wisdom and scars from many lifetimes.
We all carry memories from past lives into this life--unconscious memories that carry an energetic charge and continue to affect us. They can be things left undone, vows made, accomplishments, failures, mistakes, success, emotional debts, guilt, gratitude, traumatic and sudden deaths, wisdom, and love.
These charges from the past set up patterns which are continually triggered and repeated in our present life. These patterns can be positive or negative. They can affect our relationships, behaviors, motivations, and even our physical bodies and health. Positive patterns can feed talents, bestow wisdom, influence tastes, and energize life purpose. Negative patterns fuel destructive, compulsive behavior, cloud judgment, cause injury, and block your way.
By making these memories conscious, we can release the patterns that no longer serve us, freeing us to live more fully in the present. Beneficial patterns are reinforced, negative patterns are neutralized.
Past life regression is the process of healing the soul by healing the past.

Past Life Regression is Spiritual
Past life regression is gaining recognition as a legitimate form of spiritual healing. No matter what religion you profess—or even if you don’t follow any religion—experiencing yourself as a soul in other lifetimes gives you a profound awareness that you are more than a physical body. You encounter your soul's essence, connected and aligned to a greater universal energy, perhaps for the first time in your life. This has happened often in my sessions. For those who experience it, they feel truly at peace.
Life Between Life
After slipping from your body, you travel in the spiritual state between lives and feel the energy of “heaven.” You get a glimpse of who you truly are—a soul learning and growing through different incarnations. Some meet guides and make plans. Some dialogue with deceased relatives, and are left with a profound sense of having made genuine contact with their loved ones.
Experiencing the life-between-life state is a natural part of most past life regressions. Michael Newton, author of Journey of Souls and Destiny of Souls, has pioneered methods for exploring the life-between-life state in more depth. These specialized life-between-life sessions that follow Newton's methods expand on the benefits of past life regression, and are usually done separately in a second or third session. Carol is certified in Michael Newton’s Life-Between-Life techniques. Ask her if you are especially interested in such a life-between-life session.

Regressions by the Untrained
Sometimes I'm asked if I think it's safe for people who are not trained as past life regression therapists--or who are only lightly trained at a weekend workshop--to conduct a past life regression on another person. I recommend against it. Here is an explanation of why I think regression by the untrained is not a good idea, and could even be dangerous.
How to Make an Appointment
Call or email me to make an appointment. I screen prospective clients on the phone before we make an appointment. I ask you questions about your intent, what you want to explore in a session, and about your background. I also answer any questions you may still have, after reading the Past Life Regression FAQ first.
If you can't travel to my office, which is in southeastern Pennsylvania, near Philadelphia, PA, I offer some advice on how to find a past life regression therapist.
If you are from out of town, I can recommend a nearby Bed and Breakfast in an historic building.
Readings on Past Life Regression
For further reading on past life regression therapy, read these articles I’ve selected from the work of two of my teachers, Roger Woolger and Henry Bolduc. Roger was a true pioneer in the field and gives the best descriptions I’ve seen of the deep healing process. His books are classics in the field. Henry was a master teacher, and a generous person, who made the process accessible to many. The articles are listed in the Library.
